First install your Dymo LabelWriter printer and software according to the directions
that came with it. If you already have a Dymo installed, check that you have the
latest software version, which contains the template needed to use these labels.
Start the Dymo Label Software, click Help then click Software Updates. If needed,
download and install the free update from www.dymo.com support. Note, that if you
are using a Twin Turbo, it defaults to the left roll for these labels. See Twin
eBay / PAYPAL SHIPPING
Note that there is both an eBay, and a PayPal shipping application. It is suggested
you set up both of these so you can use either one as needed. The eBay application
has additional USPS discounts and services available, but the PayPal application
allows for shipping of non eBay items.
Note that eBay and PayPal are in the process of changing to PDF label output, which
will no longer require Java. If you are on the new system, skip this section and
refer to PDF Label Printing.
Check that you have the latest Java Runtime. Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel,
and click the Java icon (coffee cup). Then click on the Update Tab. If you do not
see the Java icon go to www.java.com for the free download.
If you want to avoid the printer permission popup see Java Notes.
Sign in to your PayPal account and click My Account, Profile. Under Selling Preferences,
click Shipping Preferences. Then under U.S. Postal Service Preference, click Edit
Printer Settings. Select Label Printer, and in the drop down menu select any Dymo
model and click Save.
You can use PayPal Shipping for non eBay items and personal shipping. Either open
the Multi Order Shipping option and select Create New Orders, or for just a single
label use this link www.paypal.com/shipnow .
eBay now defaults to eBay Shipping. When you go to print postage and the shipping
window opens, click on the Printer and Label Receipt Preferences button at the upper
right and select any Dymo model and click Save.
Printing eBay / PayPal USPS Shipping Labels
From eBay or PayPal select Print Shipping Label and follow the instructions until
you get to the USPS Postage Label preview window that displays a sample label. If
you do not see the proper sample label, or do not receive the instructions to print
it, either your pop-up blocker is interfering, the Java Runtime is not installed
properly, or you forgot to Select and/or Save your Dymo printer type. If your printer’s
name does not appear at the upper left above the sample label, click on Select Target
Printer and select and save your printer from the drop down menu. If you do not see
your Dymo printer listed, then it has not been installed properly.
If the sample label doesn’t look right, does not print centered, or is in the wrong
orientation, click Start, Settings, Printers, and right click your printer, then
click Printer Preferences and select Landscape. Next click on the Paper/Quality
tab, then click Advanced, and check that the Paper Size is set to 99019 Large Lever
Arch. If you do not see this template in the drop down menu, then you do not have
the current Dymo software installed, see Getting Started above.
On your first try, print the sample label to insure everything is set up properly.
Let each screen load completely before clicking to print. If you have any trouble,
just click on Reprint Label. Note if you later need to reprint or void a label,
that if you used eBay Shipping, these functions are on the eBay Order Details page.
If you used PayPal Shipping go to your Account Overview and open the Payment Transaction
Details or the USPS Details for that transaction.
Printing Endicia.com or Stamps.com USPS Internet Postage Shipping Labels
You will need an account with either www.endicia.com or www.stamps.com . These one
part labels can be used in most instances instead of the multi-part (30383, 30384,
30387) Internet Postage labels. With the exception of standard size First Class
letter envelopes, they are great for First Class Parcel or Media envelopes, as well
as Priority, Express, and Parcel Post shipments. They save the hassle of stripping
and pasting multiple part labels, and having to stock and load more than one label
type. Plus unlike others, they have a full 150 labels per roll. To use these postage
programs you will need to go to the application’s Printer Setup and select your Dymo
printer and the 99019 label template. NOTE: If you are using Endicia see Endicia
LARGE LABELS, ETC.
Printing Large Labels, Lever Arch File Folder Labels, Small Signs, etc.
This label is also supported by various other applications and is compatible with
the Dymo Label Software. To use as a large label with the Dymo software, just select
the LAF Large (99019) template from the Label Files drop down menu. For other applications
go to the Printer Setup for your Dymo printer and select the 99019 label template.
If you do not see this template, then you do not have the current version of the
Dymo software, see Getting Started above.
